Title: SR³: a Bandwidth-Reservation MAC Protocol for Multimedia Applications over All-Optical WDM Multi-Rings
Subject: M. Ajmone Marsan,A. Bianco,E. Leonardi,A. Morabito,F. Neri SR³: a Bandwidth-Reservation MAC Protocol for Multimedia Applications over All-Optical WDM Multi-Rings
Description: The paper describes SR 3 (Synchronous Round Robin with Reservations), a collision-free medium access control protocol for all-optical slotted packet networks based on WDM multi-channel ring topologies where nodes are equipped with one fixed-wavelength receiver and one wavelength-tunable transmitter. SR 3 is derived from the SRR and MMR protocols previously proposed by the same authors for the same class of all-optical networks. SRR and MMR already achieve an efficient exploitation of the available bandwidth, while guaranteeing a throughput-fair access to each node. SR 3 , in addition, allows nodes to reserve slots, thereby achieving a stronger control on access delays; it is thus well suited to meet tight delay requirements, as it is the case for multimedia applications. Simulation results show that SR 3 provides very good performance to guaranteed quality traffic, but also brings significant performance improvements for besteffort traffic. 1 Introduction In all-optical netwo...
